Little, Gertrude Our beloved mother passed away peacefully on April 12, 2014 at 5:31 p.m. at the age of 93 and is now at peace in Heaven with her Lord and Savior. She was born to Beryl and Frances Clark on December 12, 1920 in Morris, IL, but lived in Aurora for her entire life. Gert was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd, and son, Larry (DeAnn). She is survived by her children, Jackie (David) Richardson, Tom (Cindy) Little, Scott (Gayle) Little, and Tim (Amy) Little; 14 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. She was the matriarch of quite a Little family! Gert was truly an amazing woman. She always thought of others first and charitably helped so many in tangible ways throughout her life. She was known as Mom, Sister, Grandma, Great-Grandma, Aunt Gert, and just Gert to so many friends and family. Mom always loved learning and never shied away from trying new things. Of paramount, she created a tremendous family history book before computers were popularized and produced a copy for each of her children. This gift of time, love, and legacy will be cherished for generations. Mom embraced the computer and technology late into her 70's and beyond, keeping in touch with us through email, Skype, and yes, even Facebook. But even with the advent of technology, she insisted we slow down and appreciate the gift of each other. Mom realized that the most important gift she could give to us was her presence. She gave selflessly of her time and cherished the memories with her family. She was quick to laugh, poke fun, and be a friend to all. And she would never turn down sweets! Gert will be missed greatly, but we rejoice and celebrate her life here on earth while we find comfort and peace knowing we will see her again soon. She has been freed from all earthly pain, and the Angels have escorted Gert home to her eternal resting place in peace. Heaven is certainly overjoyed with thunderous applause at Mom's arrival. We delight in knowing the Lord's joy with His "good and faithful servant." Mom knew well and encouraged us to embrace Jeremiah's words as she did: "'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord, 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future'" (Jer. 29:11). The Lord's plans for Mom have been fulfilled. She has prospered and shared with all of us her abundant love. Please come celebrate Gert's life with us during her visitation at The Healy Chapel, 332 W. Downer Place, Aurora, on Thursday, April 17 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A graveside service will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, April 18, 2014 at Lincoln Memorial Park, 675 Route 30, Aurora. A memorial service will follow at 11:00 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 325 East Downer Place, Aurora. Pastor Jeff Moore will officiate.
